So today I have another installment of Bee’s fabulous Murder Mystery parties series for you guys! As you all know by now, my best friend Bee over at Journeys are my Diary, is the QUEEN of throwing parties, they’re turning into one of the highlights of my month. This month was of course, no exception although in the beginning I was worried I wouldn’t be able to afford to go! Thankfully I scraped the train fare together and headed down to visit her and her lovely family for a couple of days during the Easter holidays. On my first night she played wonderful host to our Easter themed Murder Mystery, aptly named, Death By Chocolate. This was one of the box kind where everything is pre-printed and you also get a dvd to play during rounds. It was set in 1900 Paris and it was a rather high class party attended by intellects, high society and business men and women from the chocolate world. Billy Bonker had been the one who was bunked off. Since this is one you can buy, I don’t want to give too much away! So instead, here are some photos.
The table was elegantly set, and this time we all enjoyed your standard three courses, which I think everyone was pleased about! We started with breaded brie that kinda went a little pancake like in the oven but it still tasted amazing. And then pate, which I never told Bee, but I’ve not eaten in years because I hated it… however I actually really enjoyed it spread over the breads! I will be eating it from now on. This was followed by chicken chausseur with crusty bread, which doesn’t look like a lot but it was bloody delicious! Then we finished with chocolate cheesecake which I washed down with two bottles of cider (because i’m THAT classy). We also all got to try this chocolate liqueur, which I personally thought was vile!

Anyway, the murder mystery itself was a lot of fun, but to be honest, I think that’s because I really enjoy the company of everyone in our group. It was such a laugh as ever. The guy on the DVD, Inspector McClue (or Clueless, is what he would have been better suited to) was really annoying, but I think we had a lot of fun mocking him. I had a really fun evening, as ever and I’m looking forward to the next Murder Mystery at the end of May, but luckily we’re getting together for a Eurovision party in a few weeks time. I can’t wait to see everyone!
